Sunday is Sumi Salad Day!

Hello my people!

Thanks to my outstanding salesmanship and good weather, we had a great outcome to the garage sale yesterday.

I made many new friends and I found that my tube top also doubled as the perfect money carrier too.

Bonus!

The college kids made enough money to get them at least halfway from California to Virginia.


I thoughtlessly provided a cookie recipe for you yesterday, forgetting that most of my US friends are indeed living in an oven at this time.

Let's all calm down and cool down with a nice salad today, shall we?

This is a Betty Favorite!



Sumi Salad:

1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup sunflower seeds
8 green onions finely sliced
1 head cabbage -chopped
1 pkg ramen noodles, broken up

DRESSING:
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp salt
1 cup oil
6 tbsp rice vinegar

(Some people add 1 tsp Accent as well!)


FOR SALAD:

Toast almonds and seeds until lightly browned .

Combine onions, cabbage, almonds and seeds.


FOR DRESSING:

Mix all ingredients and add to salad.

Add broken noodles (uncooked) just before serving.

Tofu, Chicken or Fish can be added.


Betty's Notes: This is a strangely addictive salad. Remember, I warned you. It's really good the second day too!

Happy Sundays, everyone!

Sounds most crunchy. Never would have thought to use raw noodles, but what the hey.

Mamma has spoken said...

OOOOO this is one of my favorite salads too!!! Problem is it I'm the only one in this house who likes it :o(

That salad looks yum and healthy. I'm in!

This sounds pretty good. I adore cabbage in any form and being the mother of teenage boys, I buy ramen by the case, so it's always on hand. It's hotter than Hades here so this very well may find it's way on our table as an easy side to go with some burgers or franks this week. Thanks.

Daisy said...

I'm glad to hear the sale was a success. Thanks for the salad recipe. Sounds yummy! :)

Catherine said...

Glad the garage sale went well Betty. And so glad the tube top came in handy! LOL!

Happy Sunday!

I was just thinking of this the other day, it is nice to have something cool to eat.

Susan in the Boonies said...

That sounds good Betty! I love cabbage slaw with sunflower seeds, Caesar dressing and feta cheese. But rice vinegar is a brilliant idea. I'd love to try this.

I think I'll try this today...have to take a cold pasta salad to a luncheon, and I have all the ingredients for this. Thanks!

This Betty looks delicious and noodles too.

Have a peaceful Sunday.

Now that sounds tasty!
And what - no garage sale photos?

Brian said...

That is some yummy looking salad! I can't believe you sold your garage though!

DG at Diary of a Mad Bathroom said...

That looks ridiculously delicious and coming from a post that I just read about double decker oreos, I am ready to eat my laptop.

jenny_o said...

So how are the kids going to make it the rest of the way to Virginia? I bet Betty has some ideas up her sleeve ...er, no sleeves in a tube top, but you know what I mean ...

The Green Streak said...

Ingredients are going on my grocery shopping list. Sound yummy for when I go back to work a week from tomorrow. Not that I'm counting or anything. . .

Madi and Mom said...

Yay for yard sales and Mama's wearing tube tops...LOL

This is our 5th day of over 100.... super high heat index.

I'm using my crock pot a lot and making salads.

It looks yummy. We've been living on fruit and salads. It's only 89 today, kind of like a cold wave.

They'll make it halfway to Virginia? Hmm, I hope there's a good school in Kansas or thereabouts. Maybe you need one more sale.
That's a great recipe. Thanks.

That looks delicious, although my tired old teeth might not make it with the uncooked noodles.

Bouncin' Barb said...

If only I could eat cabbage I'd make this right now. It sounds heavenly.

EmptyNester said...

Hey! I've got an idea! Why don't we all just come to your place and you can make these wonderful recipes for us! Yeah, I like that idea!

Ann said...

Looks like a yummy salad. I think I would have to trick my husband in to eating the uncooked ramen noodles though
glad the garage sale went well

Brian Miller said...

i thought using the tube top as a money holder was a southern thing..smiles.

the salad sounds good...

MsCroker said...

Post pics of the garage sale -- esp. you in the tube top! :-)

We can't wait to see Trevor and Bernice when they move to the South.

Dillypoo said...

I informed the hubby I wasn't cooking again until the temperatures dropped below 100. I wonder how long he can live on this?

Lin said...

Oh, it sounds GREAT! Can you make me some so I don't have to sweat making it??? Sigh. I'm DONE with the heat. Done.

Baby Sister said...

Hmmmm....that looks scrumdidlyumptious!!

Leanne said...

Oooo, Betty! That salad looks scrumdiddlyumptious! What time should I come over for lunch tomorrow???

(Sorry I've been absent from reading over here - been a crazy couple of weeks. My patio table BROKE in a storm, and I have been thinking about the post you wrote when your neighbors table broke. It make me laugh as I was out in 90 degree temps sweeping up the glass! Hope you are well, my dear!)
